The Dive Site Orientation Series – Homestead Crater

Hi Dive Buddies!

I’m excited to be publishing the first installment of the Dive Site Orientation Series. In this video we tour the Homestead Crater in Midway Utah.

The first one here is the Vimeo version or VEdit as I’m calling it without the funner footage and pithy commentary by your’s truly.

Read on for some history of the Homestead Crater, services offered and, of course, the link to the Youtube edit where SKuba Steve is attacked by aliens!

Hi Dive Buddies!Screen Shot 2013-12-07 at 9.07.42 PM

The Dive Site Orientation Series will include brief videos & accompanying blog post that describe the basic layout, services, type of diving and what to expect when you visit the site.

  • Instructors can use these videos to help reduce student dive site anxiety and to ensure that students know, in advance, where specific things are located to make a class go as smoothly as possible.
  • Students can use the series to orient themselves with a specific dive location so, when the arrive, they can concentrate on equipment and skills with the comfort of already being familiar with the site itself.
  • Divers can use the series to make their own recreational dive experience as familiar and hassle free as possible.

Why Dive a Computer? – Dive Planning!


Another beautiful shot by Mika Hiltunen – thanks for sharing Mika!

I don’t sell diving computers, I don’t get commission when one a diver buys one but I’m passionate about getting divers into computers.

And here’s why…
